Went with my husband for our anniversary and we had a blast! The staff is amazing! Beautiful rooms and quiet atmosphere. The murder mystery weekend keeps you guessing the whole time I was the murderer and didn't even realize it till the end. Totally awesome time and the food was great. We will definitely be going back.

We also learned a lot of the history of the house and the area. The rooms are comfortable and period appropriate and the food was delicious for both breakfast and the... More

I had no idea where we were going for my birthday weekend and I don't think it is possible for my husband to have planned anything better than the Murder Mystery Weekend at Harry Packer Mansion. We drove into Jim Thorpe around 8:30pm and my breath was immediately taken from me when I saw the Asa Packer Mansion all lit... More

We had a wonderful weekend at the mansion with other guests on Saturday night and Sunday night we had the mansion to ourselves! The restoration on the Inn is incredible! The innkeepers were terrific and informative. They helped us print out a covered bridge tour near the area. Breakfast was awesome! All the rooms we saw were beautiful! Jim Thorpe... More

We arrived at the mansion without expectations. The adventure began as soon as we arrived. The mansion is a magnificent example of an authentic 2 1/2-story, three bay wide, red brick dwelling in the Italianate style. The ambiance of the mansion sets the perfect backdrop for a murder mystery. I enjoyed the authenticity of the house as well as the... More

If you are looking for a fun and an extraordinary experience, Harry Packer certainly fits the bill. I surprised my hubby with a Murder Mystery weekend and what fun we had! We enjoy B&B's a lot and this one absolutely had the historic charm and quaint town to walk around in as well. What really set it apart is the... More

We were always curious about how a murder mystery weekend would be, so after researching several options within a 2-3 hour drive from our home, we decided on the Harry Packer Mansion. We went without too many expectations as far as the actual murder mystery was concerned, but we did hope for a comfortable room, good food, friendly hosts, and... More

My wife and I attended the New Year's Murder Mystery getaway at the Harry Packard Mansion.  From the moment we entered the mansion it was like being on a journey back in time. Most everything was restored to perfection to accurately depict the grandeur of the Victorian Era.  There were a few restoration projects currently underway but this made it... More

My fiancé and I had a great experience at the Harry packer! We stayed in the carriage house which is really nice, but if you have the chance try. And stay in the mansion. The breakfast food was great, and the mansion is beautiful. Strongly recommend this for a couple looking for a romantic weekend. Not very kid friendly, so... More
